No crossing near tunnel, CCTO tells pedestrians

AS part of its preventive measures, the Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) will put up warning signs and barriers along the Cebu South Coastal Road to discourage illegal crossing.

This, after a four-year-old boy was killed Tuesday morning when a trailer truck ran him over near the tunnel on the coastal road.

Lawyer Rafael Yap, CCTO chief, said that while the public has been informed of the strict prohibition on crossing the coastal road, some continue to do so.

“We are working now with Councilor Dave Tumulak on putting up the signs and barriers. Although it is more of a police matter, we will instruct all roving personnel to clear the area of bystanders,” he said.

Yap assured that all CCTO mobile personnel will be more vigilant in looking out for violators and will be reprimanding them for their safety.

“The refueling station of all our mobile personnel is in the SRP so they’ll be able to check the area. Kids are not allowed to cross the coastal road,” he said.
